K-Monate at Signal Gun is a wonderful place to dine on great food while enjoying a selection a wines from the Durbanville Wine Valley. The atmosphere here is inviting and while perfectly relaxed. The restaurants itself, and the view of the surrounding vineyards, were both beautiful. We found this restaurant by chance, after a laid-back session of wine tasting with friends and family at the Signal Gun tasting room. If you missed that post, check it out here: Signal Gun Wine Tasting. Most of us ordered pizzas, which were baked in the wood fire pizza oven. This was a wonderful afternoon, filled with love and laughter. We met a new member of the family, Baby Logan, and got to spend some much needed time with some of our favourite people!
Above, My cousin holding Elijah and me with her son, Logan. Our boys are only about 3 months apart in age. This was the first time that the boys got to met. Sadly, they probably won’t see each other for a couple of years but this was a special day that we won’t forget. It was great spending the day together, but saying goodbye was tough because this was the one, and only, day that we got to spend together while we were in South Africa.
So much love for our little man. As you can see, Catherine couldn’t get enough snuggles from Elijah. He slept in her arms for about an hour, and she absolutely melted while she held him. Seeing our sweet friend with Elijah made us so happy. We love these memories of our time in South Africa!
There were three babies on day out at Signal Gun Wine Farm. The baby cousins and little man, Camden. Tayla was in heaven because everywhere that she turned, there was a baby to be held and played with.

Tayla and I took Elijah outside to play on the grass. It was a little cool and breezy, but the sunshine felt amazing. Eli absolutely loves Tayla, and she is so good with him. He won’t have many opportunities to freely crawl in the grass in China (we have no garden), so I’m glad that he enjoyed this summer-time fun.
After a rather late lunch, it was time to get the babies (and adults) home to rest. We said goodbye to the others, took a couple of group shots by the vineyards, admired the view, and then went to see the animals on the farm.
On our drive home we saw the legendary cloth covering Table Mountain (pictured below). The sky was filled with pinks and purples ahead of us, and with red, orange and yellow in the direction of the sunset. We played music, sang loudly, and watched the beautiful twilight colours from the car.
|Table Mountain with it’s Tablecloth|
“The flat top of the mountain is often covered by orographic clouds, formed when a south-easterly wind is directed up the mountain’s slopes into colder air, where the moisture condenses to form the so-called “table cloth” of cloud. Legend attributes this phenomenon to a smoking contest between the Devil and a local pirate called Van Hunks. When the table cloth is seen, it symbolizes the contest.”
Another great afternoon, spent with family and friends, in the magnificent City of Cape Town.
